Re: Anyone here on self-catheterization? I need some tips.
The most common size for cathing is a 14 Fr. For females, a 6" (long) catheter will work fine although I have female friends that uses the male or 16" (long) catheters. I believe Coloplast has a womens catheter that will easily fit into a handbag and is very discreet. At first, you will probably resist using the catheters, but once you start, you will happily keep using them.
I started self-cathing about 10 years ago and how wish I had started sooner. It is harder to get us guys cathing as I guess it's a psychological thing.
Give a shout if you have any questions or fears.
